People who do the recommended amount of exercise each week live longer and are happier and healthier than those who don’t. So what are you waiting for?
Jump for joy!
There are endless ways to be fit and active: running around with your friends, riding your bike or taking your scooter to the skate park. Swimming, dancing, football, roller skating, playing hide and seek or tag, building a den or playing rugby or gymnastics… whatever you enjoy!
It’s good to mix up the type of activity you’re doing though – this makes sure you are helping your heart, your muscles and your bones to grow healthy and strong.
On your marks, get set, go!
Why not get your Parent/Carer involved – grown-ups need to be active too! They need to do 150 minutes of activity a week to stay healthy.
